1980-03-29 [[Antonio Cervantes]] w rsc 7 (15) [[Miguel Montilla]], Indian Bullring, Cartagena, Colombia - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. In a return match the champion again got the better of Montilla (139½), only this time it was by the short route. Making a studied start, Cervantes (139¼) was soon stabbing the left jab into Montilla’s face as he made full use of his extra reach and he dominated all the way to drop the latter in the fifth and seventh with cracking left hooks. Although getting up from the second knockdown, with Montilla looking ready to be taken the referee had seen enough and at 1.28 of the seventh it was all over.
